The Devil is Coming


Saturday, March 7th the 2009 Fat Tire Duathlon series opens with the 5th Annual Devil’s Revenge Duathlon at Clinton Lake State Park. The Devil’s Revenge is a fun and challenging way to start your off-road season. Also, new this year we have a “Bike Only” option and have added more fun single track to our courses.

The Devil’s Revenge begins at 10:00am with a 3.75 mile trail run that includes single track, hills, rocks, creek crossings, and park roads. After a quick transition, the 11.5 mile mountain bike leg is up next. The mountain bike course is a combination of some fun single track, grass prairie, gravel roads, climbs and a few rocky sections just to keep you honest. After another quick transition, a short sprint to the finish line. Both Individuals and Relay teams can compete in this fun and challenging event. The Bike Only option will begin after the Duathlon at 10:15am.

Pre-registration ends Wednesday March 4th for the Duathlon. Due to limited quantities, event t-shirts are only guaranteed to those who pre-register so hurry and register now! Race day registration is available and opens at 8:00am.
